Alicia Vikander won an Oscar earlier this year for role in The Danish Girl, but she’s also signed on to pick up Lara Croft’s dual pistols in the next Tomb Raider film, which The Hollywood Reporter says will open on March 16, 2018.

The untitled reboot will be directed by Roar Uthaug, and won’t feature Angelina Jolie, who previously played the adventurer in 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003’s Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.

In addition to The Danish Girl, Vikander is best known for her appearance in Ex Machina, as well as a co-starring role in last year’s The Man From UNCLE. She’ll return to theaters later this month as a CIA agent pursuing Matt Damon in Jason Bourne.
